I am interested in writing my own E book on study tips for children. I think a lot of students these days don't know effective strategies on studying for exams. I want to write a book that shows them lots of fun ways to study for these exams. However I am not sure whether people actually buy e books. What is the most you would pay for an e book? Also where would I sell this e book. One place I know is to sell this e book on ebay. Any tips of E books, would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Here we find lots of printed exam reference books sold in book shops. But I rather prefer yours as it is written in a more interesting way together with lots of funs when studying. I understand that such an interesting and useful ebook will definitely be greatly demanded by the public. E book is not common in my place yet so I don’t have much idea to give more tips about it. I suggest you to get more information from ebay concerned about the way to carry out your business. Wish you the best of luck.

Ebooks are easy to compile and sell. They are relatively cheap and many people buy them. I like to buy ebooks but have never bought one because of obvious restrictions to persons like me who come from third world countries. I have no access to credit/debit cards and cannot even register with online payment processors like paypal. I, however, think it is better to publish children books as "normal" books. It makes it easier for parents to buy the books for their kids and assist the kids to make the best use of the books.

Hi Emma, thanks for your useful opinions on e books. I guess that is definately a disadvantage of e books that some people cannot even purchase them as they do not have credit/debit cards. I agree it would be easier for parents to buy books if it is a normal book. Thank you so much for your comments, it has given me something to think about.

E-books are easier to pirate sp I don't suggest that you obnly publish your book electronically. I prefer handy books that kids could carry along anywhere they go then probably, after it will become a hit, you can consider publishing e-books. I don't know how much e-books are coz some are from my friends only.

Thanks for your advice. I was worried about people pirating them, I might consider trying to get it published.
